From a Marketing Maven: How to Build a Successful Team and Solve Problems Creatively


Innovation and wisdom are polar opposites, right? Alicia Arnold, SVP of Account Director at Hill Holliday, proves it is possible to have both qualities. She shared with us her view on the future of marketing, leadership, and a different approach to solving business problems. 

Connect with Alicia on Twitter and
LinkedIn 
  1. Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know.  I'm a lifelong learner. I hold a Bachelor's in Management, an MBA in Marketing, and an MS in Creativity, Innovation, and Change Leadership. I've also taken classes in furniture making, pottery, jewelry making, cooking, tennis, Zumba, Mandarin, interior design, real estate, snorkeling, scuba diving (did I mention I can't swim), photography, writing, and inventing.
  2. What has been your criterion for taking on new activities/learning experiences? Do you have a strategy or is it just whatever inspires you? How do you feel these areas of interest have helped you professional experience/skills? How would you motivate others to take on learning new subjects? When it comes to taking on new activities and learning experiences, I look for things that give me energy. It's more of an exploration. Learning new things and exploring different interests provides a good canvas for relating to situations, relating to people, and coming up with ideas.

Women in Wireless San Francisco Announces 2014 Mentorship Program

The San Francisco chapter of Women in Wireless is thrilled to announce our Mentorship Program!


This year we've designed a unique program to give mentor/mentee pairs an opportunity to sharpen their skills, flex their creative muscle, and partake in a valuable real-world learning project.

The program has 3 phases that each pair will work on together, then present to an industry leader and a small group for constructive, positive feedback:
  • 1: Develop an idea for how mobile technology could improve life in developing areas  
  • 2: Craft and present a VC pitch
  • 3: Build a go-to market plan to bring your idea to life

Mentors and Mentees will be required to attend 4 Women in Wireless events throughout the year to sync up with each other and to showcase their work (about once every 6 weeks).

This is an incredible opportunity to advance your personal and professional development through a direct partnership with other innovative, brilliant, and connected Women in Wireless.
